3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml can. Crisp snow white head atop a hazy amber body. Bready malty aromas that are very inviting. Full in the mouth with a smooth easy drinking mouthfeel. Good body and well balanced.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Better than the score suggests. Fruity, grainy and a step up from your traditional macro lager. Butt ugly can though. A bit of wheat is evident too. Comes across as a fruity golden ale.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Fresh, grassy, slightly nutty aroma. Cloudy pale yellow, no visible carbonation, and a very slight hint of a head spread out. Grassy, pils-like flavor with a dull bitterness. Thin body, not a lot to grab onto. Pleasant enough, but could probably use a little more bittering.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Canned at Shinshu Osake Mura (Nagano Sake Village), Tokyo. Clear golden, creamy head. Fruity and grainy, slim and dry. Light grassy hops leads it the strightest way to a salty bitterish finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale colored. Fruity, malty flavor. Slightly grassy and decently balanced. I find this can be quite variable. At its best, it is a light, fruity, citrusy, flavorful pils, almost ale-like. It seems to go off rather easily, though, and then it gets rather insipid (see some ratings below). This rating is for a can in top condition.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can: Nose of light malt, clear yellow, the flavor is malty. Nice crisp grassy note and a full body. Mouthfeel is lacking and citrusy but decent. A crispy golden pilsner, seems more like an ale though.
